The DM Lab based in Hereford has been nominated for the Digital Star at The Small Awards 2020.

The DM Lab which was established in 2010 provides quality digital marketing for businesses of all sizes, locally and nationally, working closely with clients to deliver results.

The Small Awards, organised by Small Business Britain, is a nationwide search for the smallest and greatest firms in the UK, across all sectors. Launched in 2017, it celebrates smaller businesses that are often overlooked for recognition at other national awards.

This yearā€™s Small Awards will cast a particularly important spotlight on the sectorā€™s crucial role in helping the country through the pandemic crisis. The awards form a vital part of Small Business Britainā€™s ongoing ā€˜Back to Businessā€™ campaign.

With eleven unique categories, the awards celebrate the dynamism of the UKā€™s small business sector, across everything from longstanding family businesses and innovation-led start-ups, to social enterprise champions.

Michelle Ovens MBE, Founder of Small Business Britain said:

ā€œThe UKā€™s 5.8 million small businesses make a powerful contribution to peopleā€™s lives up and down the country, and this has been particularly striking recently. These firms mean so much to their customers and staff and they are truly at the heart of communities, but they are not in the limelight enough. The Small Awards recognises the fantastic contribution of small firms like The DM Lab. We want to give them all a deserved boost – particularly in these challenging times! We had a record number of applications this year, with an incredibly high standard of entries, so all of the small businesses shortlisted should be rightly proud of this achievement.ā€

Chris Tipping, Marketing Director of The DM Lab said:

ā€œThe DM Lab’s simple but unique branding makes us instantly recognisable. Our company motto is ā€˜Making Brilliant Marketing Simpleā€™, working hard to deliver results. Thatā€™s exactly what weā€™ve done for 10 years and will continue to do. Our work and passion in supporting other local businesses, the community and creating work experience opportunities has been recognised by our local parish council. We are dedicated to improving both our city and our county. It is an honour to be shortlisted for the Digital Star award recognising both our passion for our work and successes this brings with the businessā€

Judged by a panel of leading enterprise experts, the winners of all categories, along with the overall winner of Small Business of the Year, will be announced on 2 July 2020.

This year, in light of social distancing, Small Business Britain is reformatting its traditional glittering gala dinner ceremony into a lively virtual event. Small businesses across the country will zoom in together for an evening of fun celebration, featuring entertainment, special guests, speeches, networking and more!
